D.C. police are investigating a double shooting early Friday in the Shipley Terrace neighborhood of Southeast Washington that left one man in grave condition.

Police responding to the shooting about 12:15 a.m. found one victim in the 3500 block of 19th Street SE, and the second a couple blocks west on Stanton Road.

“One of them is in very, very serious condition,” said Lt. Nicholas Breul, District police spokesman.

Police said one of the victims was 19 years old and the other was an adult male.

Police have no information yet on a suspect.

Another fine example of the uselessness of big-city gun laws.

Should be easy to find the suspects; I am sure they registered their guns and micro-printed their bullets.
